Middleman, been hearing that guy. How's the experience
I have a ruby and Rails background, so it felt pretty natural to me. It uses a similar pipeline for assets, which is becoming outdated, but it still works and it's dead simple.
I like that the static site movement has forced me to think more "simple" about things. Having a plethora of XaaS providers to lean on (headless CMS, JS based shopping carts, etc) for common things has helped as well.
I used <iddleman, and then I jumped on the bandwagon and built my own pipeline with Webpack. A year or so after that I went back to Middleman and its as you say.
Sprockets may be considered outdated, but it does everything I need and its dead simple to get working.
So I ask myself this, Would you rather write Markdown or Haml?
